Ravello – Amalfi Coast, Italy – May 2015

During our time in Atrani we took a hike up a mountain to reach the Path of Gods and this path led us directly to what we now refer to “a little heaven spot on earth”, It’s a small village on the Amalfi Coast, called Ravello.  (When you click on the Ravello link, click on the category, “attractions” and then click on “vitual tour”, photos & music”.  These photos will speak for itself about this beautiful place.

The Path of Gods is basically a trail that runs along the mountain ridge which overlooks the sea below. Parts of the trail  connectss ome of Amalfi’s coastal towns by going up or down steep staircases. We started our hike up from Atrani and eventually it connected us to the Path of Gods. We followed this path and it eventually brought us directly to Ravello. Just be careful as a small portion of this path is on the road and therefore cars and motorcycles are coming through at a pretty fast pace. If you take your time their should be no issues.

Ravello is lovely, but what is spectacular about Ravello is the visit to the Villa Cimbrone Gardens & Villa Rufolo Gardens. Spending the day here is something we will never forget. The views no doubt  have been photographed time and time again. They tell us that the Infinity Terrace itself has been photographed in wedding pictures hundreds of time over. To see these spectacular views with our own eyes was absolutely magical. For the romantics, don’t miss out on visiting this place.❤️

Excerpt taken from the Ravello website- “The town has become known as “la città della musica“, the city of music, and for the past several decades the Villa Rufolo has been the center of an annual summer concert series that features piano concerts, chamber music, and a grand orchestral performance on a stage built jutting out over the Mediterranean Sea and the rugged Amalfi Coast below.” See photo below- I can just imagine myself sitting there on a warm Summer evening listening to a music concert. Unfortunately when we were planning this trip we did not know about these concerts happening in Ravello. Something to plan for next time. 😊
